Composed by Traditional African-American Spiritual. Arranged by James Markey. Folk,Gospel,Praise & Worship,Spiritual. Score and parts. 48 pages. Gordon Cherry #4806773. Published by Gordon Cherry (A0.792352).

Joshua F’it de Battle of Jericho is a well-known African-American spiritual, most likely composed by slaves in the early 19th century. Early versions used the word "f’it" for "fought". The words harken to the biblical story of the Battle of Jericho, where Joshua led the Israelites to victory against Canaanite armies.

Put into perspective, Joshua’s battle is really against slavery and the desire for freedom, like the themes of so many other spirituals from that era.

This rousing arrangement in swing-style for 8-part Trombone ensemble by James Markey is about two minutes in length, featuring the 1st and 8th parts and is for advanced performers.

The mp3 sound clip is taken from Mr. Markey’s solo Bass Trombone album, "on base", and includes star performers including Joseph Alessi, David Finlayson and Lisa Albrecht
